I've been away for ages, but I'm back folks!

So much has happened since I last posted. The great job I started turned out to be not so great. Actually, it turned out to be a fucking nightmare - spending ten hours a day with a woman who insists on making everyone around her suffer, just because she can! I lasted four months and chose to run a mile... well, closer to five hundred miles.

At the end of August I will be moving to Balnakeil, near Durness. My mum is already up there, I will be joining her soon, then my dad and grandmother will be following us up in December when my dad's work contract is up.

In some respects, I can't wait to go, but I am dreadfully worried about leaving my friends, I'm particularly worried about leaving Dan. I can't shake the feeling that in six months time I'm going to get a phone call saying he's dead. I really don't know what to do about him.

Many, many lager concoctions are fun.

Must sleep now!

Things are finally starting to come together for me.

I'm taking a year out of university so I can get myself together. Anyways, I applied for a job working as a carer for a woman who was in a car accident that left her paralysed down her left side. I got a phone call this morning saying that she really liked me and the job is mine if I want it.

Fuck yeah I want it!

I went into my old college to ask for a reference and bumped into Alison, my second year philosophy teacher and she offered me another job. Basically I won't get paid for it, but she wants me to go in and tutor some of the first years in the run up to the exams.

I'm so excited, I haven't felt like I've got anything going for me in a very long time.

Last week was a great week too. Exhausting, very exhausting, but still great. On Monday I spent the day job hunting, but in the end only applied for the one. Tuesday I went for an interview that never happened because of a huge mix up, then I drove to Sheffield to see Regina Spektor play, then back to Manchester. On Wednesday I drove up to Lancaster. On Thursday I drove back from Lancaster then went to see Seth Lakeman in Manchester. On Friday I finally had my damn interview and bought two tickets to see Seth Lakeman play in Durham. On Saturday I drove for three hours up to Durham to Seth Lakeman, then I drove back the same night. Sunday was supposed to be a bit of a rest but I ended up going out with Dan and Aimee anyway.I love driving but I never realised how exhausting it really is.

Going back to Seth Lakeman... The man is a fucking God!

His music is absolutely stunning and I can't put into words how amazing he and his band are live. Me and Lou got chatting to them after the gig in Durham and they are quite possibly some of the friendliest people I have ever met.

Also, on a slight Seth Lakeman note, Cormac Byrne, who played percussion on Seth Lakeman's last album, is doing a bodhran workshop at the Oldham percussion festival next month. I booked my place this morning - I can't wait!

I've felt like shit for so long, its so nice to finally see a bit of that silver lining!

I felt fine an hour ago. Now I feel like I may be dying in a horrible, messy fashion, almost certainly involving a great amount of nasal mucus.

Mmmm... chewy!

Spent the last three days in Lancaster. It was a lot of fun, though the complete lack of anything approaching an internet connection was excruciating.

The girls at uni bought me a Doctor Who neon sign. Its fucking awesome, I love it!

I love nights like this.

I've spent most of the day in my pyjamas, feeling pretty crappy (because, of course, thats news). Dan rang me to see if I wanted to go up to his for a while. Fair enough, I'd got nothing better to do, so I got ready and Bhavini turned up on the doorstep. I've not seen Bhav since before Christmas, she's my oldest friend and I love her to bits.

She didn't stop long. She'd been home for her mum's birthday and decided to drop in on her way back to Leeds.

Went up to Dan's to find out that his sister had just given birth to a healthy baby boy after being in labour for a terrifying three days. They've named him Charlie Henry.

We headed back to mine so I could get some dinner when Adam rang me to see if I fancied a quick pint. I haven't seen Adz in aaaages so I was well up for it. Dan and I walked round and were immediately informed that Robin and Lee would be joining us at some point as well.

Well, that just made my fucking night! Robin is just *guh* and, given half the chance, I would do many, many filthy, possibly illegal things to him. He's also Dan's cousin, so Dan keeps trying to set us up.

Cheers Dan! I love you, sweetie, but you're not half making things awkward...

Plus, I had a quick word with Anne, the landlady of the Cottage and she said she might have some work for me. Money is a wonderful thing when I have it. Sadly, at the moment, I do not.

All in all a fucking great night. I love my friends so much - I really don't know what I'd do without them.

You guys fucking rule xxx

I'm 21. I nearly ran away from home yesterday. They are better off without me.

Just did a brain sex test on the BBC website. It basically tries to determine the sex of your brain by the answers you give.

I'm a *bloke* :-(

As it is officially LGBT history month in the UK, I've been tinkering about making a couple of flags.

Bi Pride

Gay Pride

Still lonely though...

Just not as bothered about it today!

I've been feeling incredibly sorry for myself recently. Even more so than usual.

I'm lonely.

Everyone I know has someone in their life. Someone to talk about constantly, or spend all their time with, or generally rub in my face.

I guess I'm a bit bitter.

I'm alone, I have no-one to care for, no-one to care for me, no way of getting through a fucking conversation without the subject of their significant other popping up.

Damn right, I'm bitter!

Not that I would ever deny anyone their partner. I'm happy for them - they have what I want.
